Oyster and Walnut Stuffing
One stick of butter
1 cup of chopped celery
1 cup of chopped onion
1 tin of smoked oysters chopped
¾ cup of chopped walnuts
2 – 3 cups of chicken or turkey broth
16 cups of stale bread or 2 packages of dressing bread cubes
2 cloves of garlic crushed
Salt and pepper to taste
¼ cup of fresh thyme chopped
¼ cup of fresh parsley chopped
Melt 1 stick of butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add the chopped onions and celery then add the parsley and thyme; add the garlic, add salt and pepper and cook 5 minutes. Add 2 - 3 cups of (start with 2 cups of broth, then add more if needed) turkey or chicken broth and bring to a simmer. Add 16 cups cubed stale white bread, then pour in the vegetable-broth mixture and toss.
Transfer to a buttered baking dish and dot with butter. Cover and bake 20 minutes at 375 degrees; uncover and bake until golden, 20 more minutes. (Or stuff in your turkey and bake.)
Enjoy! Happy Thanksgiving.
